This paper summarizes the risk assessment results based on analysis performed on the three primary compression systems within six different ethylene plants. The methodology used to assess associated risks and system dynamics is presented. Alternative methods for mitigating risks are also discussed along with check valve reliability data. An overview of applicable overpressure protection requirements defined in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is provided. This paper will be of interest to anyone that designs or operates multistage compression systems in the chemical, petrochemical or refining industries.
